One Response to “The ASSC Speaks”
It seems to me that your cartoonist has a truckload of anger issues, aimed predominately at anyone who disagrees with him. I agree with the ASSC that the comic strip depicting African American women as bitter, complaining shrews while THEY depicted African American men as deadbeat, trifling losers was wholly inappropriate for a community college paper . . . for ANY paper, for that matter. I am of the opinion that comics serve two purposes, either singly or dually: To provoke thought concerning social, familial or political issues and/or to incite laughter. I haven’t seen a single strip drawn by Phil Temple that does any of these things. Although he is a marginally talented artist, he is obviously a very poor writer. Perhaps he should find someone with some brilliant views on social, political and familial life and draw their vision, because his “visions” just doesn’t do it for me.
The image of a raggedy, disheveled, smelly young person wearing what looks like a chain salvaged from a slave ship is very ugly; not entertaining at all.
